Wazuh addresses the need for continuous monitoring and response to advanced threats.  It focuses on providing the right visibility, with the knowledge to help security analysts discover, investigate and respond to threats and attack campaigns at multiple points.

Wazuh helps detect hidden exploit processes that are more complex than a simple signature pattern and can be used to evade traditional antivirus systems.  In addition, the Wazuh agent provides active response capabilities that can be used to block a network attack, stop a malicious process or quarantine a malware-infected file.


Wazuh offers benefits that will help us to protect our company such as:

Security analysis: Wazuh will help us collect, aggregate, index and analyze security data, allowing the company to detect intrusions, threats and behavioral anomalies within the network.

As cyber threats become more sophisticated, real-time monitoring and security analytics are required for rapid threat detection and remediation.

2. Intrusion detection: Wazuh agents scan systems for malware, rootkis and suspicious anomalies. These agents also help us detect hidden files, covert processes or unregistered network eavesdropping, as well as inconsistencies in responses to system calls.

3. Log analysis: In the logs of systems, devices and applications in your infrastructure, there are many situations where there is evidence of an attack. Wazuh can be used to collect and analyze log data automatically.

4. File Integrity Assessment: Wazuh monitors the file system and identifies changes made to the content, permissions, ownership and attributes of the files to be monitored. It also natively identifies users and applications used to create or modify files.

5. Vulnerability detection: Wazuh agents extract data from the software inventory and send this information to the server, where it is correlated with continuously updated CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposure) databases to identify known vulnerable software.

6. Configuration Assessment: Wazuh helps us monitor system and application configuration settings to ensure that you comply with security policies and standards.

7. Incident response: Wazuh provides ready-to-use active responses to carry out various countermeasures to address threats.

8. Regulatory Compliance: Wazuh provides some of the security controls necessary to comply with industry standards and regulations. These features, combined with its scalability and cross-platform support, help organizations meet technical compliance requirements such as NIST, PCI-DSS, among others.

9. Cloud Security: Wazuh helps monitor cloud infrastructure at the API level, using integration modules that can extract security data from well-known cloud providers such as Amazon AWS, Azure or Google Cloud. In addition, Wazuh provides rules to evaluate the configuration of your cloud environment, easily detecting weaknesses.

10. Container security: Wazuh provides security visibility into your Docker hosts and containers, monitoring their behavior and detecting threats, vulnerabilities and anomalies. The Wazuh agent has native integration with the Docker engine that allows users to monitor running images, volumes, network configurations and containers.


What is the difference between EDR and Antimalware?

Many people confuse EDR and anti-malware capabilities, assuming they only need to use one of them. However, these two technologies complement each other. Antimalware is a preventive tool that relies on signature-based detection, and does not provide visibility into how attacks develop. We can catch malware, but we don’t know where it comes from or how it spreads in the network.

EDR, on the other hand, provides a complete picture of how an attacker attempts to gain access to your system and contains it if possible. EDR can detect malicious activity on an end device as a result of zero-day exploits, advanced persistent threats, fileless or malware-free attacks, which leave no signatures and therefore can evade anti-malware.
